for the united states to act, and they have a right to defend itself. and some say it could happen before the election. but the attempts to get president obama to establish red lines failed. and in his efforts to have a meeting with president obama in new york next week have also so far not come to fruition, jamie. >> jamie: so far, that is true. rick, great reporting this week, thank you. >> kelly: and there's no letup in the anti-american protests we have been talking about, that is sweeping throughout the muslim world. this is the scene we're looki i and police firing tear gas to disperse hundreds of stone throwing protesters there. reports of dozens injured and arrested and several cars burned. after days of protests, what will it look like to calm or what will it take to calm the muslim world? joining me live right now, stuart holiday, ambassador to the u.n. for special political affairs and the president of the meridian center and always good to have you join us on the program, and tell us about exactly what's going on in the middle east right now. how do you see american foreign po

, everyone. there are nearly 40 of our jobs bills sitting in the united states senate. all part of our plan for american job creators that we have been working on all year. these bills cut red tape, remove government barriers that make it harder for small businesses to hire new workers. there are bills to address our debt, expand american energy production and approved projects like the keystone pipeline. there are bills that stop the present's tax hike and fix the tax code. to bring more jobs home from overseas. these are good ideas, all passed with bipartisan support here in the house. president obama will not work with us to find common ground or urged senate democrats to take action. why? it is because democrats have failed to lead. they failed to lead on jobs. the unemployment rate has been over 8% for 43 consecutive months. they failed to lead on energy. everything from gasoline prices to groceries will cost more today. the president's defense suppression -- sequestration threatens our national security and his tax hikes threatens some 700,000 jobs and our country. while democrats hav
